INSTRUMENTS AND WARNING LIGHTS (Figure A1) 



PROOFMETER 

The proofmeter (1 ) registers the engine revolutions per minute (r.p.m.) and the 
number of 'hours' the tractor has worked. The indicated engine r.p.m. must be 
multiplied by 100 to determine the true engine speed. 

Tractor ground speeds, power take-off and bolt pulley speeds for certain 
indicated engine r.p.m. are listed on a decal beneath the proofmeter. Further 
information on these speeds may be found in Section I of this Handbook. 

The 'hours' (2) measured are based on an average engine speed and do not, 
therefore, necessarily correspond to clock hours. The service periods are 
specified in 'hours' and the hourmeter should be watched for when they 
occur. 

SPEEDOMETER 

On Highway tractors the proofmeter is replaced with a speedometer to comply 
with Road Traffic Regulations.

WARNING LIGHTS 

The generator warning light (3) is illuminated when the key starter switch, (6) 
Figure A4, is turned on, the engine started and run-up to idle speed. If the 
light remains on at higher revolutions this indicates that the battery is not 
being charged. If the light remains on stop the engine and establish the reason. 

The engine oil pressure warning light (4) is illuminated when the key starter 
switch is turned on. The light should go out immediately the engine starts but 
if it remains on stop the engine and investigate ihe cause. 

TEMPERATURE GAUGE 

The temperature gauge (5) measures the temperature of the engine coolant 
and at normal engine operating temperatures the needle should be halfway 
between the blue (cold) and the red (hot) zones. 

The gauge is not operative when the key starter switch is in the 'off' position. 



SECTION A 



DRIVING THE TRACTOR 






FUEL GAUGE 

The fuel gauge (6), operative when the key starter switch is turned on. indicates 
the amount of fuel in the tank by quarter graduations. 



PRE-START CHECK 

It is advisable before starting the tractor to carry out the Daily Service check 
detailed in Section F. Check also that there is sufficient fuel in the tank and that 
the fuel tank shut-off valve is open, (1 } Figure A2. This valve is situated on the 
right-hand side of the fuel tank. 



"RUNNING-IN" 

The 'running-in' period of a tractor's life is extremely important and the 
following instructions should be followed very closely during the first 50 hours 
of operation : 

1 . Avoid overloading the engine. 

2. Use the lower gear ratios when pulling heavy loads and avoid continuous 
operation at constant engine speeds. 

3. Check the instruments frequently and keep the radiator and oil reservoirs 
filled to their recommended levels. 

4. Avoid prolonged 'no load' operation at either high or low engine speeds. 

Whilst the above instructions are particularly important during the 'running-in' 
period, following them throughout the tractor's life will prove beneficial to the 
overall performance and efficiency of your tractor,

DRIVING THE TRACTOR 



SECTION A 



STARTING THE ENGINE 

TRACTOR SEAT (Figan A3) 

Prior to starting the engine adjust the tractor seat to the most comfortable 
driving position. Both the steel pan and the contoured type of seat are adjustable 
fore and aft; the steel pan seat utilising the pairs of holes in the seat mounting 
bracket and the contoured seat by adjustment along the angled slots (1) 
in the seat base. 

The tension in the contoured seat may be adjusted for the operator's weight by 
turning the cranked handle (2) until the two indicators (3) align. This adjust- 
ment should be made with the operator in the seat. 

All types of seat may be tilted back to permit the operator to stand. 

STARTING (Figure A4} 

1 . Check that the engine stop control (1 



is pushed in and the handbrake (2) 



engaged. 



2. 



Depress the foot operated clutch pedal (3) positioned on the left-hand 
side of the gearbox, and set the main and high/low gear lever (4) in 
'Neutral' (the starter motor can only be actuated when the high/low 
lever is in this position). 

Set the hand throttle* lever (5) half open (pulling the lever downwards 
opens the throttle.) 

Insert the starter key (6) and turn clockwise to the first position (8) to 
operate the instrument and warning lights and further clockwise (9} to 
engage the starter, 

When the engine starts release the key and allow it to return to the 
first position. 

Immediately check to ensure that the generator and oil pressure warning 
lights go out. 

* Highway tractors and. for certain territories Agricultural tractors, are fitted 
with a foot throttle (10) as well as a hand throttle. The throttle pedal is situated 
on the right-hand footplate. The operation of the foot throttle over-rides the 
hand throttle which should be set to idling speed when the foot throttle Is 
being used.

SECTION A 



DRIVING THE TRACTOR 



COLO WEATHER STARTING 

When starling under cold weather conditions it is important that the starter 
key be held in the 'start' position continuously until the engine starts. This 
allows heat to build-up in the combustion chambers. At very low tempera- 
tures it may be necessary to hold the key in position for up to 35-40 seconds. 
Do NOT operate the key in a series of short jabs. If the engine does not 
start after 40 seconds, allow 4-5 minutes for the battery to recover then 
repeat the starting procedure. 

As a further aid lo cold starting, the Ford 3000 and Ford 5000 are fitted with an 
excess fuel button. Figure A5, on the side of the fuel injection pump. This 
button should be depressed prior to starting the tractor and will be automatically 
disengaged when the engine fires. If the engine does not continue to run the 
button must be depressed again before another attempt is made to start the 
engine. Optional starting aids are available for extreme cold conditions and 
details of these are given in Section 'H', 



DRIVING THE TRACTOR 

For fuel economy and minimum engine wear it is important to select the correct 
gear for a particular operation. 

To drive the tractor select the desired gear using the gear change and high/ 
low gear shift levers. Figure A6, in conjunction with the decel below the 
instrument cluster. 

Engage the clutch whilst increasing the engine speed slightly. The clutch pedal 
should not be used as a footrest as prolonged 'riding' of the clutch may cause 
damage. 

To stop the tractor depress the clutch and apply both brake pedals, (11) 
Figure A4 and place the main and the high/low gear shift levers in the 'Neutral' 
position. Apply the handbrake situated on the left-hand side. (2) Figure A4, 
of the tractor seat on the Ford 2000 and 3000, and on the right-hand side of the 
seat on the Ford 4000 and 5000. Pull out the engine stop control and turn the 
starter key anti-clockwise, (6) Figure A4. to the "off" position.

DIFFERENTIAL LOCK 

Should wheelspin be experienced depress the differential lock pedal, (12) 
Figure A4, located on the right-hand side of the rear axle housing, until the 
lock is definitely felt to engage. Then, release the pedal. The lock will auto- 
matically disengage when the traction of both rear wheels equalises and the 
pedal will return to its original position. 

If the pedal is slow in returning, momentarily depress the clutch pedal or 
briefly apply the brake corresponding to the wheel which has been spinning, 
this will assist the disengagement of the differential lock. Avoid the use of the 
differential lock at high speeds or while travelling on public roads. 

BRAKE PEDALS 

To reduce the tractor turning circle apply the left or right independent brake 
pedal as required. Enter the turn before applying the brake. 

Lock both pedals together when operating at high speeds or on public roads. 

It is important that you keep your brakes in proper adjustment. See section 'G' 
for details. 

LIGHTING 

The tractor lighting system is basically the same for all models except for 
certain small differences to meet local regulations. 

The light switch, (7) Figure A4, positions are as follows: 

Straight up . . 'OFF' 

First right . . Side and tail lights 'ON'. 

Second right . . Side, tail and low beam headlights 'ON' 

Third right . . Side, tail and high beam headlights 'ON' 

Fourth right* . . High beam headlights 'ON' only. 

11 This position is not obtainable on tractors sold in some countries. 

A rear light socket (where fitted) is situated on the right hand side of the 
tractor beneath the driver's seat. On certain tractors a further socket is fitted 
under the toolbox. These sockets should only be used for a tract or/ trailer 
rear light or accessories drawing not more than 36 watts. 

An accessory terminal. (1) Figure G15, is also located behind the fuel tank 
shroud.

DRIVING THE TRACTOR 



DIRECTION INDICATORS, (Figure A7f (where fitted) 

Tractors supplied to certain territories are fitted with flashing direction indica- 
tors (1) operated by a lever located to the left-hand side of the steering 
column. Moving the lever downwards will indicate a turn to the left, and 
upwards, a turn to the right. If required one or two additional pairs of indicators 
may be connecled into the circuit. 

The lights on the lever assembly (2) will flash as follows : 

1 . with the tractor indicators only — one light 

2. with the tractor indicators and one other pair of indicators — two lights 

3. with the tractor indicators and two other pairs of indicators— three lights

SECTION B 




DRAFT CONTROL (Figure B1) 

Draft control is selected by moving the position/draft selector lever (1 ) down- 
wards. Having set the hydraulic main control lever (2), together with the 
adjustable quadrant stop (3), to the desired position, the system will auto- 
matically maintain the implement at a depth relative to the ground contour 
irrespective of tractor movement. Use the adjustable stop to return the hydraulic 
main control lever to the same position. 



IMPLEMENT POSITION CONTROL (Figure B1 ) 

This control enables an implement-to-tractor height or depth to be selected 
and maintained without any further adjustment. 

To operate the control : 

1 . Set the Position/Draft selector lovor (1) in the uppermost position. 

2. Set the implement to the required working height or depth by using the 
hydraulic main control lever (2). 

3. Use the adjustable slop (3) to maintain this position. 



FLOW CONTROL VALVE (Figure B1) 

The flow control valve regulates the lifting speed of the 3-point linkage or 
remote control cylinders. A fast flow, marked as 'F' on the control knob (4), 
provides quicker corrections and transfers maximum weight to the tractor 
for increased wheel adhesion. 

Slow settings, achieved by turning the Knob towards 'S', reduce the speed of 
corrections and under certain conditions improves the rale and quality of 
work, particularly in hard soils. 

When operating in a slow setting an internal linkage temporarily over-rides 
the slow setting when the implement is raised. 



SECTION B 



THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM 



AUXILIARY SERVICES CONTROL VALVE (Figure B1) 

This control (5) allows ihe tractor's hydraulic power to be used to operate 
external cylinders on such implements as loaders and tipping trailers. The 
auxiliary services control valve positions are: 

Ford 2000 (where fitted), 3000 and 4000: 

1. 'IN' to operate the 3-point linkage. 

2. 'OUT' to operate external cylinders. 

3. 'HALF-OUT to operate the 3-point linkage and external cylinders 
together. 

Ford 5000 : 

1 . 'IN' to operate the 3-point linkage. 

2. 'OUT' to oporato external cylindors. 

3. A joint service is possible by using a second jack tapping point (6) 
forward of the standard take-off point (7). 

The main control lever is used to obtain the above services. 



OPERATION OF EXTERNAL CYLINDERS 



1, 



2 



3. 



4. 



Select draft control and move the hydraulic main control lever to the 
'neutral' position on the quadrant i.e. where neither raising nor lowering 
takos place. 

Move the adjustable stop on the quadrant to mark this position so that 
neutral can be readily located. 

To extend the cylinder, pull the auxiliary service control knob out, and 
raise the hydraulic main control lever above the neutral position. When the 
external cylinder is fully extended return the hydraulic main control lever 
to the neutral position to avoid possible damage to the relief valve. 
If the 3-point linkage is fully raised when using the external services it will 
be necessary to move the main control lever past the fixed stop at the top 
of the quadrant in order to operate the external cylinders. 

To retract the external cylinders, move the main control lever below the 
neutral position on the quadrant.

THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM SECTION B 



General instructions 

1. External cylinders are operated by oil drawn from the rear transmission 
housing. Although the quantity of oil available is sufficient for normal 
operation with most implements, it may be necessary to add oil if several 
remote cylinders are operated together. 

2. Any external cylinder which is disconnected when extended means a loss 
of oil and this should be replaced by adding a corresponding quantity to 
the rear transmission. 

3. All hoses should be cleaned before connecting and the open ends of all 
hoses should be covered with dust caps when not in use.

POWER TAKE-OFF SHAFT 

Your Ford tractoris equipped with a 1-375 inch (34-9 mm) diameter PTO shaft. 

The standard PTO speed is 540 t 1 rpm and most PTO implements willoperate 
at maximum efficiency when the PTO is operated within this speed range. 



: 






TRANSMISSION P.T.O. (Figure C1) 

The Transmission' type of PTO (available on Ford 2000, 3000 and 4000 
tractors) is operated by engaging the clutch, and will stop turning when the 
clutch pedal (1) is depressed. 

The drive to the PTO is engaged by depressing the clutch pedal and moving the 
PTO lever situated on the left-hand side of the rear transmission, fully rear- 
wards (2). To disengage the PTO depress the clutch and move the lever to the 
forward position (3). 

The table below shows the recommended engine speeds to obtain the PTO 
speed of 5404; 10 rpm.

LIVE P.T.O. (Figure C2) 

Live PTO (available on Ford 2000 and 3000 tractors) operates in a similar 
manner to Transmission' PTO except that an intermediate clutch pedal position 
(1 ) stops the tractor without stopping the PTO shaft. 

To operate the PTO shaft, depress the clutch pedal completely and move the 
PTO shift lever fully rearwards (2). Engage the PTO by slowly releasing the 
clutch pedal (3) until the shaft begjns to turn. Allow the PTO shaft to roach the 
desired speed then slowly engage power to the rear wheols by releasing the 
clutch for the remainder of its travel (4). Control the PTO speed and tractor 
forward travel by use of the throttle and by selecting the right gear. 

The clutch operating rod clevis pin can be used in two positions. Select the rear 
position (5) m the clevis to operate and control the drive to the PTO and the 
tractor. 

When the PTO is not in use put the pin in the forward position (6). 

To obtain a PTO speed of 540± 10 rpm an engine speed setting of 1800 rpm 
■srequ.red. ^ ^ 

INDEPENDENT P.T.O. (Figure C3) 

An 'Independent' PTO (Available on Ford 4000 and 5000 tractors) can be 
engaged or disengaged while the tractor is either moving or stationary. ■ 

To engage the PTO on Ford 4000 tractors move the PTO shift lever forwards 
(1), and on the Ford 5000 move the lever rearwards (2). 

To obtain a PTO speed of 540 i- 1 rpm an engine speed setting of 1 800 rpm on 
the Ford 4000, and 1900 rpm on the Ford 5000 (1700 rpm on U.K. Ford 5000 
tractors) is required.

Category 1 



Ford 4000 



and 5000 



Category 2 



TOP LINK ((f) Figure Df) 

The lop link is adjusted by releasing the locknut (a latch on the Ford 5000) and 
rotating the sleeve until the desired length is obtained. 

HYDRAULIC LIFT ROCKER ((2) Figure Df, and Figure D2) 

Better sensitivity of control may be obtained by changing the pivot point of the 
rocker or the position of the top link on the rocker : 
Ford 2/3/5000. Use (1 ) Figure D2 for light draft operation 
(2) Figure D2 for heavy draft operation 
Ford 4000. Use (1 ) Figure D2 for heavy draft operation 
(2) Figure D2 for light draft operation 

LEVELLING BOX {(3) Figure Df} 

A levelling box is provided on the right-hand lift rod to control the level of the 
implement. Turn the lever clockwise to lengthen and anticlockwise to shorten 
the rod. 

IMPLEMENT ATTACHMENT 

When connecting linkage mounted implements attach the left-hand lower link 
first, then the right-hand link (which can be raised or lowered using the 
levelling box), and finally the top link. This operation is much easier if the tractor 
is correctly aligned with the implement.

STANDARD SWINGING DRAWBAR 

The swinging drawbar fined lo the Ford 2000. 3000 and 5000 tractors gives 
two positions-one at 14 inches {35-6 cm) from the end of ihe PTO shaft and 
the other giving a 'close-coupled' position enabling the hitch point to be 
moved nearer to the rear of the tractor. Use theclose coupled position fortowing 
heavier types of equipment. 

On the Ford 4000 the 14 inch (35-6 cm) position only is available. By inverting 
the drawbar and/or changing the position of the clevis different drawbar 
above ground heights may be obtained. Figure D3.

FRONT WHEEL TRACK ADJUSTMENT 

The from wheel track adjustment is as follows: 

All Agricultural and Highway tractors— 52-80 ins (1 32-1 -203-2 cm). Figure El . 

Ford 2000 and 3000 Vineyard tractors— 33-51 ins (83-8-129-5 cm). Figure E2. 

Ford 2000 and 3000 Narrow tractors— 44-60 ins (1 11-8-1 52-4 cm). Figure E3. 

To obtain the track settings indicated thus (*) in Figures E1 and E2. set the 
track as shown and reverse the wheels. 

ADJUSTMENT PROCEDUREfFord 2000 and 3000) 

Put the wheels in the straight ahead position and align the marks on the 
steering arms and stub axle. Figure E4. Work on ono outer axle section at a time 
(this is advisable in order to maintain a toe-in reference) : 

The procedure is the same for both sides but starting with the left-hand axle : 

1. Jack up and remove the bolts holding the axlo extension to the centre 
beam. 

2. Move the axle extension to the desired position and replace the bolls in the 
axle as shown. On Agricultural and Highway tractors the radius rod should 
be set to the innermost hole on the centre beam when the 52 and 56 inch 
(132-1 and 142-2 cm) positions are selected and the 60 inch (152-4 cm) 
position, Figure E1, when equipped with power assisted steering. 

3. Check and adjust the toe-in as follows: 

Loosen the two clamp bolts on the left-hand drag link. (2) Figure E4. and 
adjust length of drag link until toe-in marks (1) on the left-hand vertical 
spindle and arm are in line. Tighten clamp bolts. 

4. Repeat procedure for right hand axle adjustment. 
ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE (Ford 1.5000) 

1. Jack up the front axle and remove the bolts which. hold the outer axle 
sections to the centre axle section and the track rod clamp bolts. 

2. Move the outer axle sections to the desired position and replace the bolts 
in the axle sections and the track rod clamp bolts. 

3. Finally adjust the length of the drag link (not necessary on Ford 5000 with 
power- assisted steering) by removing the bolt from the front end of the link, 
extending the link to the required notch setting and reinstalling the bolt. 
(Notch 1 corresponds to the shortest drag link length)

TIMING THE FUEL INJECTION PUMP 

If at any time the fuel injection pump is removed the pump must be correctly 
timed when re-installed. 
Proceed as follows: 

(a) C.A.V. PUMP (Figure G5J 

Before fully tightening the three pump retaining bolts align the mark on 
the pump mounting flange with the zero mark on the engine front 
mounting plate, the pump will then be correctly timed. 

(b) SIMMS PUMP (figure G6) 

Remove the flywheel inspection cover, Figure G1 , and the cover from the 
rear of the injection pump. 

The engine is correctly timed if a suitable pointer (1). placed in the 

vee-notch in the pump camshaft aligns with the mark on the pump 

housing when the flywheel mark is set to 19 : BTDC (before top dead 

centre) on the compression (both valves closed on No. 1 cylinder) 

stroke. 

If the timing marks are not aligned: 

1. Remove the inspection plate from the front of the engine timing 
cover (for easier access, remove the lower radiator hose after draining 
the radiator coolant). 

2. Slacken the three pump drive gear securing bolts (2) and rotate 
the pump until the marks (3) are aligned. 

3. Tighten the gear securing bolts (if removed, replace the lower 
radiator hose, and refill the radiator). 

4. Replace the injection pump end cover and flywheel inspection cover. 
Finally, bleed the system.

TRACTOR STORAGE 

If a tractor is to be stored tor an extendod period carry out the followino 
operations: a 

1. Thoroughly clean the tractor. 

2. Lubricate the tractor: drain all oil from the engine, the transmission and 
rear axle, and refill with new oil to the correct specification. 

3. Drain the fuel tank of ordinary fuel and pour about two gallons of special 
calibrating (lubricating) fuel (consult your authorised Ford Tractor 
Dealer for availability) into the fuel tank. 

4. Run the engine for about 10 minutes to ensure complete distribution of 
the special oil throughout the fuel system. There is no need t< remove the 
injector nozzles. 

5. Remove the battery and check that it is fully charged. Store the battery In 
a warm place and re-charge periodically. 

6. Place supports under the tractor axles to take the weight off the tyres. 

7. Drain all coolant from the radiator and engine block. 

8. Support the lift arms in the fully raised position. 

9. Cover the exhaust pipe opening. 

To prepare the tractor for service after the storage period :- 

1- Inflate tyres to the recommended pressures ; refill the cooling system and the 
fuel tank; check the oil levels in the engine sump, transmission, and rear 
axle; install a fully charged battery. 

2. Remove the exhaust pipe covering (if other than rain cap attachment). 

3. Start the engine and let it idle a few minutes. Check that all controls are 
functioning correctly and that the engine is receiving lubrication. 

4. Drive the tractor without a load to ensure that it is operating satisfactorily.

AUTOMATIC PICK UP HITCH 

I tin hydraulically operated pick-up hitch installation, available as a production 
M|Mion or accessory, provides a means whereby trailers, etc.. can be quickly 
.tM.iched to the tractor without It being necessary for the operator to leave the 

I In- design of the auto-hitch is such that equipment may be operated on the 
normal 3-point linkage without removing the auto-hitch from the tractor. 
Raising and lowering of the hitch hook is controlled by the standard hydraulic 
id i lever. A special device is incorporated in the hitch unit to mechanically lock 
it in the raised position. 

iterate the automatic pick-up hitch, (Figure HI and Figure H2) (hitch in raised 

lion) 

1. Set the Position/Draft selector lever to Position Control. 

2- Move the hydraulic lift main control lever to the fixed stop at the top of the 
quadrant to take the weight of the hitch off the locking struts (1 ). 

I Pull the release handle (2) (forwards on the Ford 2000 and 3000 tractors, 
upwards on the Ford 4000 and 5000 tractors) while moving the hydraulic 
lilt main control lever down the quadrant. Allow the spring loaded release 
handle to return to its normal position as soon as the hitch arms (3) have 
lowered sufficiently for the locking lugs (4) to clear the locking struts. 

A. Position the hitch hook directly under the eye of the drawbar of the trailed 
equipment. 

5, Move the main control lever slowly up the quadrant until the hook engages 
with the eye. Continue moving the main control lever to the fixed stop at the 
top of the quadrant to fully raise the hook, then drop the lever slightly to 
allow the locking lugs on the hitch lifting arms to rest on the locking struts. 
The downward load on the automatic pick-up hitch hook should not exceed 
3000 lbs (1361 kg). 

Adjustments (Ford 2000 and 3000) ' 

Periodically check, with the lift arms in the fully raised position, the clearance 
between hook and the drawbar support assembly plate. (5) Figure H1 . 
The specified clearance is 1 /32 inch (0'8 mm) and if any adjustment should be 
required turn the yokes on the lifting rods an equal amount until the correct gap 
is obtained (half a turn of the yoke will alter the clearance by 1 /50 inch (0-5 mm)). 



SECTION H 



OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES 



Adjustments {Ford 4000 and 5000) 

Set the distance between the lock nut and adjustment guide shoulder, (6) 
Figure H2 to 0-75 in (19 mm) and raise ihe hydraulic linkage to the fully 
raised position. Adjust both guides equally to raise the hook high enough to 
allow free movement of the locking latch during engagement and disengage- 
ment. Tighten both lock nuts. 

SWINGING DRAWBAR FOR AUTOMATIC PICK-UP HITCH 

A swinging drawbar is available that has been specially designed for use with 
the auto-hitch. 

The drawbars for the Ford 4000 and 5000 have the same range of adjustment 
as those mentioned in Section D. but the drawbar for the Ford 2i..00 and 3000 
differs as follows: 

1 . Three holes in the front of the drawbar provide alternative fixing positions 
on the front anchor bracket giving 9 inch (22-9 cm), 14 inch (35*6 cm) 
and 1 6 inch (40-6 cm) positions, measured from the end of the PTO shaft. 

2. The effective height of the drawbar can be varied to give eight different 
positions, Figure H3, by changing the position of the support bracket pin 
and/or inverting the drawbar/drawbar clevis. 

The swinging drawbar for the Ford 2000 and 3000 uses the same support 

points as the auto-hitch so it is not possible to install both pieces of equipment 

at the same time, however, it takes only a few minutes to convert to either 

installation, 

To do this it is recommended that the Following instructions are followed: 

To install swinging drawbar (Figure H4) 

(a) Fully lower the pick-up hitch. 

(b) Disconnect the hook frame at the rear by removing (1 ), (2), (3) and (4). 

(c) Disconnect the lift arms by removing (5) and (6). 

(d) Remove the lift arms and hook frame from tho tractor. 

(e) Install the drawbar support plate using (7) and (8). 

(f) Install the swinging drawbar using (9), (10) and (11) at any one of the 
three front holes depending on the rearward extension required.
